The red, white and blue colours carried by Streama to many high level successes in recent years will be on show at Canterbury where one of her close relatives has her first start for trainer Ron Quinton.
Guy Walter prepared Streama throughout her career for the Coghlan family which also owns Viascon who runs in an 1100m maiden for fillies on Wednesday.
Walter died suddenly in May, just a few days after Streama made her last race a winning one in the Doomben Cup, her fourth Group One victory in a career spanning 34 starts, all bar one in stakes company.
Streama is by Stratum out of the Coghlans’ mare Pensiamo, the dam of Viascon’s mother Tessamo.
“Guy gave her one start when she was younger,” Quinton said.
“She has had two trials for me and I was pleased with her most recent one.
“She is a compact filly but quite strong and is by Denman. I like what I’ve seen of his progeny so far.
“We’re going to the races on a learning curve for her and me and let’s hope she rises to the occasion.”
Viascon has barrier six in the nine-horse field.
Quinton’s other runner at Canterbury, Martilago in the 1900m race for fillies and mares, also has a breeders’ pedigree.
The four-year-old is an Encosta De Lago daughter of Martique, a daughter of grand race mare Champagne.
“This is a nice race for her back to fillies and mares grade,” Quinton said.
“She is beautifully bred with Champagne as her second dam and I’m going to the races happy with both of them,”
Both Quinton’s horses will be ridden by his former apprentice Sam Clipperton, Sydney’s champion junior rider of the past two seasons who is now in the senior ranks.
